Default Re: User tips for D command & D control

Nice topic, Chris.

Did you know that there are 6(!) ways to focus a track on Main unit?

1). Press lower Select button on a track while in Focus mode (‘Focus’ LED is lit on Main unit, indicating that select buttons by faders are used for focusing tracks)
2). Press “Go to” button on Main (located on the right lower corner of the unit) – “Focus on Track” dialog is posted. Type in the Track Position Number or use Up/Down Arrow keys to change Track Position Number in the dialog, hit OK – the track with selected number is focused on Main.
3). With mouse click on plug-in plate or send or Mic Pre plate or panner on track X. If the preference “ApTrgt” is set to “yes” in Soft Keys/Operation, track X will be focused on Main. If preference “ApTrgt” is set to “no” in Soft Keys/Operation, clicking on different track elements in PT session will not re-focus the track.
4). Pressing right “Nudge 1” button in Bank/Nudge section while holding Command Key (Mac) will focus first track in the session on Main. Pressing it again will focus track 2 and so on. Generally, if track with position number X is focused, pressing right “Nudge 1” button in Bank/Nudge section while holding Command Key will focus track with position number X+1. Pressing left “Nudge 1” button in Bank/Nudge section while holding Command Key will focus track with position number X-1. If the first track in the session is focused, pressing left “Nudge 1” button in Bank/Nudge section while holding Command Key will un-focus the track. Similarly, if the last track in the session is focused, pressing right “Nudge 1” button in Bank/Nudge section while holding Command Key will un-focus the track.
5). To focus a track, which is in Input mode:
Should the user need access to the input channel while it is shown in Inline mode, the user can press <Cmd + Select> next to the encoder for the channel and it will focus that track in the Focus Channel Strip.
6.) To focus a track and assign plug-in to CF section, Plug-In mode:
When a channel strip is in top-level plug-in mode, pressing Select switch by plug-in X’s name will place plug-in X in CF section, Plug-In mode – CF section becomes active, the track with plug-in X is focused on Main.

Enjoy,

Konstantine.
